How can I pick a key colour in an image file in an automated way?

Recently I am sure I saw a script or action that analysed an image file and instead of generating the average colour, looked for a key colour (for example a logo colour) and provided that colour value. For example it might look at this image and give you the blue or the pink rather than a beige / skin tone average. Does this sound familiar?

Cutting Out Objects in GIMP

I am using GIMP and having the simplest difficult just cutting out an object (such as a briefcase). I want to cut object out and then place them in a different image....I can simply drag an entire layer to a new image but really need to know how to image-edit....I don't really know how to do it. I resorted to making a layer below and trying to erase around the object and that didn't work. I know how to do it in Photoshop but no longer have access to it in my office. If it matters I am on an IMac. I am kinda embarassed that I cannot figure out such a simple yet important procedure. Any help? Thanks so much for your input and time!

Bigger Than Big, Taller Than Tall

PhotoshopFilter: How does one add resolution to an image? My current image size is 3'w x 2'h at 100dpi. The finished image needs to be roughly 10' x 7.5' (possibly bigger) at 100dpi. If I just scale it up or add dpi, I'll have noticable pixelization. [more inside]

Program that will batch adjust light levels on (ZIP and RAR) compressed CBZ and CBR files of scanned JPEGs?

I have a large amount of CBZ and CBR files that are ZIP and RAR files respectively with scanned JPEGs of comic books inside them. Thing is, the levels on the scans are sometimes too dark or too bright. Is there a windows program that would batch fix the levels (like photoshop's Automatic Levels command) on the compressed archives without having to unzip pr unrar them first?
